1ST CANADIAN LICENSE FOR 60M. Industry Canada issued its first license
on the new 60 meter developmental band, VX9GHD to VE3FI Russ Hemphill
on April 4th. Canadians have been waiting for 3 years for this new
opportunity to join the USA and Britain. This band is badly needed
for Emergency Communications when conditions on 40 and 80 are not
suitable for transmitting or receiving traffic. This license is for
one year then it will be open to all Canadian amateurs using their
own callsign.

Graeme/VK4FI and Alan/VK4WR will be active as E51GMH and E51BKM, respec-
tively from the South Cook Islands between April 8-27th. Graeme informs
OPDX that they will activate Rarotonga Island (OC-013) and Aitutaki Island
(OC-083). Their main band of interest is 6 meters, and for the HF bands,
40/20/17/15/12/10 meters. They will use an IC-706 and an FT-450 into a 5
element Yagi for 6m and a OCF Dipole. Modes will be CW and SSB only, no
amplifiers - 100 watts only. QSLs go to VK4FI (see info - 2 USDs
for postage).

E51, SOUTH COOK ISLANDS (Reminder). The E51M DXpedition team, which will
be going QRT - probably as you are read this, will be active as E51EWP
from Rarotonga, South Cook Islands, again between April 11-14th. Activity
will be on all bands including 60m, using CW, SSB, but with an emphasis
on RTTY because there is a high demand for RTTY. QSL via DJ8NK, direct or

cards can be made after April 20th. For more details, see the E51M Web
page at:          

GI2012, NORTHERN IRELAND. Look for special event station GI2012MGY to be
active between April 12-18th. Operations will be in Belfast from onboard
the SS Nomadic - Titanic's 'Little Sister'. To mark the Centenery of the
sinking of the Titanic, the City of Belfast Radio Amateur Society will
be active on most HF bands using CW and SSB. The SS Nomadic is the only
remaining historic link to the Titanic left afloat, and she is also the
last surviving White Star Line vessel in the world. Like Titanic herself,
she was built at the shipyards of Harland and Wolff in Belfast, Northern
Ireland,and served as a tender to the Olympic and Titanic. Please see
GI2012MGY on for QSL details and further info.

Southern Haiti until May 12th. Activity will be limited and during his
free time because of his work. Operations will be on 40-10 meters using
SSB, RTTY and other Digital modes. His equipment is a Kenwood TS-480sat
and dipole antenna. QSL via his home callsign, by the Bureau or direct.

IOTA NEWS..............
  AS-079.  Operators Takeshi "TAKE"/JS6RRR and Fusao "FUSA"/JA5DUR/JS6
          will be active from Miyako Island (Okinawa) between 0900z,
          April 26th and 0000a, May 7th. Activity will be on 160-6
          meters (including 30/17/12m) using CW, SSB, FM, RTTY and
          PSK31. In case of heavy rain or other conditions, the operation
          may vary. QSL JA5DUR/JS6 via JA5DUR and JS6RRR via JS6RRR. The
          Bureau is the best. Please check for detail.

  AS-109.  (CANCELLED) It was announced that the RT9K/P DXpedition was
          cancelled because the temperature in Nadym was over 0 deg C
          and the snow is melting. The next few week's forecast also
          predicts higher temperatures which will weaken the ice for
          the snowmobile and tricky for a boat to navigate. The team
          has returned home to find a different method of transportation.

  HK0NA QSL UPDATE. It was announced on April 5th [edited]: "The HK0NA QSLs
  have been designed and the order has gone to the printer. We estimate that
  the HK0NA QSL card processing should start sometime in May-June, 2012. We
  are currently busy opening mail, and pre-processing the log for future
  label printing. PLEASE understand that this will be an enormous enter-
  prise and will take time to process. QSL cards will not be mailed all
  at one time. We are pre-processing direct OQRS request first. Direct mail
  will be next." Updates will be posted on the SJDXA's Web page at:

  QSL MANAGER CHANGE. Phil, F5PHW, reports that QSLs for FO8RZ and FO8RZ/P
  can now be sent to F5PHW direct, by the Bureau or LoTW. If you have
  already sent a QSL to F8BPN, don't send it again, you will receive your
  QSL soon. Phil sends a big thanks to Mauricette, F8BPN, for the very
  good QSL managing job she did. F5PHW's address is on or send
  it to: Phil BERGER, 14 rue du 4 eme bataillon FFI, 56690 NOSTANG, FRANCE.
  All info about FO8RZ is on:

  QSL STATUS VP6T, ETC... Nigel, G3TXF, reports that during the past two
  weeks some 3,000 direct QSL requests have been replied to for VP6T (and
  ZD7XF). As of April 2nd, they are completely up-to-date. Take a look

  ST. PETER & ST. PAUL ROCKS LOGS (Update). Cesar, PY2YP, continues to
  obtain logs for St. Peter & St. Paul Rocks DXpeditions from the operators
  and uploads them into LoTW. He mentions this week that thanks to Joaquim,
  PS7JN (now PS8JN), he was able to receive the following logs:
  ZY0SAT - Mar. 31st-Apr. 14th, 2001  ZW0S      - Dec. 3-18th, 2003
  ZY0SAT - Feb. 24th-Mar. 11th, 2002  PS0S/PS7JN - Nov. 25th-Dec. 10th, 2004
  ZW0S  - Apr. 6-18th, 2003          PS0S/PS7JN - Sep. 7-22nd, 2005
  ZW0S  - Sep. 2-17th, 2003          PS0S/PS7JN - Jan. 20th-Feb. 2nd, 2004
  The logs are in spreadsheet and will take some time to convert them to
  ADIF format. He hopes to upload the logs to the LoTW later this week.
  In addition, he also received paper logs from 1982 and 1991 operations.
  The logs are large and will take a lot of time to type. Watch the following
  Web page for updates:
  LAST MINUTE UPDATE: Cesar reported on April 5th, "The ZY0SAT, ZW0S and
  PY0S/PS7JN logs are now in the LoTW. Log search is available at
  <>. The satellite QSOs from ZY0SAT log are
  still pending for upload. This completes the 'on the rocks project'
  first step: gathering and uploading logs. Now I will work on the paper
  logs as is in the web page and keep trying to have 2 more logs: 1978 and
  1987 operations."

  and ZD7XF


S7, SEYCHELLES. Heye, DJ9RR, will be active as S79RR from Mahe Island
between May 15-23rd. Activity will be holiday style on 40-10 meters
using CW and RTTY. QSL via his home callsign, by the Bureau or direct
or LoTW.

TJ, CAMEROON. Ivan, 5N7M/OM3CGN, is now active as TJ6RM until April 16th.
Activity is on 40-10 meters using CW and SSB. QSL via OM3CGN.

VP2M, MONTSERRAT (Reminder).  By the time you read this, the "Buddies
in the Caribbean", a mini-DXpedition group to Montserrat (VP2M), should
be active now and until April 16th, with a new group of operators who
have never experienced the "other side of a pileup"! Because of severe
baggage limits on the flight from Antigua to Montserrat (one bag under
50 lbs!), they will be limited to 100 watt or less low power radios
and the Buddipole portable antenna systems. They will have two of the
new Elecraft KX3's with them and believe this will be the first DX-
pedition using the new KX3 radio (Ser#23 and #24). Yet their goal is to
demonstrate "ultralite" DXpeditioning into magnificent "vista" locations,
operating a field portable battery-only radio with backpackable, light-
weight antennas and most of all "having fun" on the "volcano isle". The
eight operators are: Budd/W3FF (VP2MFF), Guy/N7UN (VP2MUN), Paul/KB9AVO
(VP2MVO), Larry/W7DGP (VP2MLR), Russ/N7QR (VP2MQR), Tom/K2GSJ (VP2MTM)
and Chris/N2YYZ (VP2MYZ). There will be several villa stations in operation
on 160-10 meters using CW, SSB, and RTTY or PSK. At the same time, several
teams will be battery-only, field portable either from Montserrat beaches
or scenic mountain tops. QSL via LoTW, eQSL, or mail to the operator's home
callsign (SASE required).

WH0, MARIANA ISLANDS. Masahiko, JH4VUC, will once again be active from
Saipan (OC-086, USI NI002S, WLOTA 1333) using the callsign WH0VU between
April 18-21st. Activity will be on all HF bands and modes. QSL direct to
his home callsign.

XV2, VIETNAM. Larry, W6NWS, is back in Cai Be district, Vietnam, for a
family visit until June 12th. Look for him to be active as XV2W during
limited time on 80-10 meters (no 60M) using CW and RTTY, as well as SSB
if noise in the house permits. His sunset is about 1120z and his sunrise
is about 2300z. Larry states, "I am usually on .022 or .028 for CW and
.085 for RTTY if they are not already busy. On 80m, I am usually on
3.512 MHz listening up 1. I am limited to 10.1 to 10.11 on 30m." QSL via
his home callsign, by the Bureau or direct. Logs are posted to LoTW and
eQSL usually within a day.

ZD9, TRISTAN DA CUNHA. Operators Martin/G3ZAY and Robert/M0VFC are
planning (not yet confirmed) to be active as ZD9UW from Tristan da
Cunha possibly in September. More details are forthcoming, watch:
